Congrats on the new job Jiser. Well done mate.
Hi guys, just been offered a new job at a senior school doing I.T. Tech. Hence in the next few weeks there will be a vacancy at Upton Junior School in Dorset (near poole).
My current hours are 15 h/pw
My current responsbilities are: Monthly school newsletter, managing the network + all buying + support. I also manage the website with the Drupal CMS which I developed as part of my dissertation at Uni.
Its a good school (up and coming I am sure)! Great bunch of staff and the heads really great.
Just putting in a new server atm (Windows 03) and reimaging all pcs laptops. Network is as follows; Roughly 40 Pc's + 25 laptops + 4 networked printers and associated stuff on the curriculum side (also there is admin network).
Weve just had a new infrastructure put in and there is a gig across most of the school including I.T. suite + new switches etc.
Ill post the vacancy when It goes online - www.uptonjun.dorset.sch.uk/welcome is our website.
Congrats on the new job Jiser. Well done mate.
Woohoo, nice one.
Good luck with the new job
Did you get Ashdown or Avonbourne then? Well done!
I would be interested but I don't do the website ATM - and know little about such things - is that a problem? I think the head of Upton is married to one of our teachers who just left due to pressure of dealing with 2 children!
Other than that - half as many hours again for a network half the size - sounds good - might be fighting yabbadabba for that one
BTW: your welcome page doesn't work!! Well, now it is overloaded with requests but before all the pages were there but not the welcome one

Thanks peeps I won't forget!! =D
Yeh weird witch, the welcome page was working, Ill have to look into that!! I think it might be something to do with it cutting off when its overloaded not sure. Bit annoying tho. (Avonbourne i got)
Your right there, the teacher who left sounds exactly like the person who is married to the head at Upton Jun. Hes a great guy, really approachable and supportive.
In regards to the Website, I put on a WYSIWYG editor so its not that difficult to use. Its more learning how to use the CMS than anything, which I will do in the handover. Ive customized it a hell of allot tho with modules, CSS editing etc and the WYSIWYG editor doesn't work perfectly. So anyway the point is no - you don't need to know allot about webdesign.
Best thing is, the new tech will hopefully have a nice new reimaged network, new website, new infrastructure all in place for them o and an up todate inventory ready for financial checking.

Yeh you should apply! Come in before hand ill give you the grand tour, special options for you as your ginger :P We look out for our own.
I agree with the comma Thats why I just went to uni and got a degree < Duh stupid me!!
Just been called for interview for next Friday
When will your ad be in do you think?
What hours do you work? I would be hoping for an early start eg 7.45 to 8am as I can get stuff done before the network gets busy
Would love to come and visit
At the mo I do mon/wed/fri 5 hours each go. Tho I imagine it will be flexible. I am usually allowed to change my days around if need to etc. I am not always in spot on times tho. Sometimes I stay extra hours and come in at different times.
I imagine ad will be in next week or week after!
I am sure that wouldn't be a problem.
The best day would probs be after school on a Wednesday. Any of you free on Wed? Any time after 3.30pm.
Ill check it off with the head. Ive asked him before about another tech coming to visit and he said np, so should be fine.
I thing Wednesday 3.30pm would be cool.
Saying that if Witch would like an exclusive guided tour I will take a step back and come along at a later date as Witch visiting is more important than myself.
Other wise can confirm Monday if thats ok.
No, Yabbadabba, as long as you aren't going for the job, that's fine! You can always come and see my setup at either school whenever as well.
I can't do this Wed as I have a Governors meeting at Broadstone Mid at 4 - but I do finish work at about 1.45 so I could come in a bit earlier if you could see me? I can't do the next Wed either as I am on the VLE training until 4 in Blandford - which is a problem, isnt it?
I really would like to come and look around - but as I can't do Mons either it doesnt look good.

Ill speak to my head and let you know tomorrow on here.
